: i don't think it was a coincidence that during the foreign policy debate, mitt romney kept bringing it back to the economy. most people turning in were not going to be paying that close attention to some of the foreign policy issues, and i don't think many \ voters go to the polls to vote based on what our decisions will be with china or cuba, for that matter. but they do vote with their pocketbooks. statewide unemployment in florida is 8.7%, but it is much higher in various pockets of florida. in some counties, as high as 12% unemployment. as we all know, that does not talk about the under-employed. the economy is still struggling in florida. we have signs of it getting better, but i heard a story that foreclosures in the state are the highest in the nation. there's a lot of economic pressure in the state. people are feeling the pain, and whoever sells the economic message best is going to do well in this state. i should add that the republican party in the state is very strong. >> they not only have the governor's office and three cabinet offices, but the state democratic party is

"time" magazine has the president up by five points in the buckeye state. when you look at women voters in ohio, president obama is up by 19 points. in early voting president obama has a 2-1 advantage over governor romney in early voting. msnbc's joe scarborough says the new numbers scream advantage obama. >> if you were mitt romney running against barack obama's get out the vote machine, i would say five points looks more like a mountain than a molehill. >> there's at least one poll from the ap that indicates the gop is closing the gap with women. the obama campaign is dismissing in latest number. let's br
like they should. mitt romney and i are running because we believe americans are better off in a dynamic free enterprise based economy that fosters economic growth, opportunity come and upward mobility is of a government- directed stance that creates dependency. [applause] you know there's something wrong in our country when 40% of children born to parents in the lowest fifth of earners never know anything better. the question before us today demands a serious answer. how do we get the engines of opera mobility turned back on so that no one is left out of the promise of america? to answer that, we have to take a hard look at the approach the government has been taking for the last five decades and ask yourself if it's working. the approach has been to spend lots of money on anti-poverty programs. the money behind this approach is that a nation should measure compassion by the size of the government and how much it spends. the problem is, starting in the 1960's, this top-down approach created a debilitating culture of dependency wrecking communities. this was so obvious to ev
